A very cool thing about going to Antarctica is of course watching the penguins. The interaction with penguins is (as it should be) heavily regulated and you are not allowed to come closer than 5 meters. You are however allowed to just sit there and wait for them to make a move and check you out. My impression of the penguins in the wild was that these are birds who are always busy doing something, always on the move between their nests and their food source, the sea. They all use the same path created in the snow by previous penguins and fall quite often while walking on a steeper incline. I photographed this penguin just having a quick stop, looking back like it had seen something behind. Oh, and if you’re wondering what kind of penguin it is, it’s a Gentoo.
